Do you ever cover the sand? - During rainy days or storms, do you ever cover the "sandpit" with a tarp or anything? We are thinking of doing something like this but we are uncertain if we should be protecting our sand from rainy days!

If the sand is just decorative (not for kids to play in) you can cover it with chicken wire or a plastic mesh, then put another half inch or so of sand on top to make the mesh invisible. This will keep cats from scratching in it. Works for flowerbeds...

HI -- Even if you think the cats in your area are well behaved , they will use it as a bathroom . They love sand and fresh dirt flower beds. I heard if you lay a big rubber snake near , they won't come near. But you have to move it around everyday or so because they figure it out over time. That's a cute area you have.
